Seafood
Fresh, healthy flavours and emphasis on beautiful presentation please both the appetite and eyes at Volos. Modern twists on traditional Greek dishes and Greek twists on local Canadian ingredients create a contemporary culinary experience rooted in authenticity. The restaurant sources the highest quality local produce, superior quality cuts of meat and the best fish, delivered daily. Like the menu, the interior plays with different Greek elements and motifs. Natural wood and stone combined with artful and ambient lighting lend a seductive and comfortable atmosphere.



We invite you to enjoy the Volos experience.

This is a Greek restaurant, with fresh seafood, only a block from the 4 Seasons opera house, with very good food and very good service. Hard to beat in the area.

Service and ambiance was good and that’s about it. Food was poor and will not return. The grape leaves of the Dolmades were tough and the filling was too sweet. I could make a better Greek salad at home, and the octopus was very chewy and the tips/ends were completely desiccated. We canceled our main courses and left right away.

I am a huge seafood eater and Volos did not disappoint! It was my first time going and the staff were really friendly and welcoming. We had the saganaki and grilled Moroccan octopus for appetizers & for the mains we had seafood krithoroto, lamb shank with mashed potatoes and greens paired with two 6oz of their Greek white wine and their rosé which was phenomenal! Overall I would give Volos a 4.5 stars out of 5. The only very minor critique I would give is that we were seated right where the kitchen was so we saw the staff eating and cleaning which was extra noise. Of course it isn’t a big deal but bc it was Valentine’s Day I wanted a more ambient atmosphere. Also as a 20-something the prices were more pricy for the appetizers for the portion but I guess you get what you pay for! All in all an amazing place to dine. Can’t wait to go back!!!

Everything was nice - the ambiance and especially it was quiet so that you could comfortably talk. I had Lamb Shank braised with mashed feta potatoes. The potatoes were so highly laced with garlic that I had to leave most of it. In fact it was upsetting to my stomach.

Very enjoyable evening at Volos. This was our second trip there and we would return. The fish was very good and so was the rack of lamb. I didn't give this a 5 out of five because it was has to be exceptional for that rating.

My wife and I always have a great time at Volos. The food is consistently delicious every time we go, their skill at properly preparing delicate items like squid and lamb always impresses. The staff are always friendly, attentive and polite. Last but not least the atmosphere in the restaurant is relaxing and warm. If you're looking for excellent traditional Greek food and atmosphere, this is the place to go!

Arrived 10 minutes early ..it was just opening up. Would suggest if the seating area is not open quite yet, then allow for a drink at the bar.
Greeting could have been a little friendly.

Service by David was great, very accommodating, food was quite tasty.

My Family and I went for Winterlicious program to celebrate my birthday.
The appetizers and Desert were not memorable, but I got the whole Sea Bass as main dish. The fish was very well done and fresh. The herbs used for the dish added a nice flavour.

It’s a lovely restaurant. The calamari was great but the salmon was disappointing. It was mushy and over spiced. Rice too was mushy. Prep too early perhaps. And expensive.
Server was good. Would not return any time soon.

Went there for winterlicious and was hoping that it would be my go to Greek spot.
Food was mediocre
Lamb shank was cooked well but bland
Sea bass cooked well but nothing special
Salmon was too dry
Service was OK

Will not be going back there. Doesn’t do Greek cuisine any justice.

There was nothing special on the menu for Winterlicious. I expected something typical Greek, but I did not see much there. Chicken and mashed potatoes can be purchased anywhere. This lunch was not a great value for me. A bit of soup, chicken with a bit of mashed potatoes and a tablespoon of ice cream for $28 (with tax and gratuity was $36) is not a great value. Thanks.

The food was bland, service was mediocre, and we were placed at a "forced" table. In other words, this table was by the stairs to the kitchen right by the dishwashing station (they should not even have a table there as many people walk by and annoyingly brush by; NOTE: the restaurant was not full). We went to try this restaurant through their Winterlicious menu and it was quite the disappointment. With a rating of 4.8 online, I expected them to also put effort into that menu. If they didn't want to participate in Winterlicious, they didn't have to. I do not think it was a good representation of what they had to offer as the other food that we saw leaving the kitchen smelled and looked delicious. We got the salmon (no flavour) and the lamb shank (tasted like leftover stew); we were very disappointed. Olive oil was provided on table as we were seated but there was no use for it as the standard "bread plate" was not given. It felt as if the customers dining on their Winterlicious menu were a different tier of customers. Very poorly executed. We often go for the Winterlicious menu to try new restaurants and that makes us decide whether or not to try their full menu in the future. VOLOS is definitely not at the top of our list for places to go in the future.

I made a reservation and when I arrived, my table was ready to go.
Great wine selection!
I was in the mood for lamb, so I ask for the one dish, sadly they were sold out but the waitress recomendable the other lamb dish available and it was incredible, very tasty, lamb bake to perfection. Mash potato and greens perfectly done, lots of flavour.
I will come back with my friends! They are all Greek, so I wouldn’t dare to recommend it if it wasn’t pretty authentic and delicious.
Price is a bit more than the danforth area, but I don’t mind it, since location is perfect, there is parking available or accesible by public transit.
And the hostess and waitress were very warm and friendly.
Opa!!!

Hi,
I had lunch at Volos many times and usually had great experiences but this was a terrible one today. Servers were clearly overwhelmed (not enough staff in my view):
I invited three important clients (5 people in all) and was expecting to share a good time. food was good but service was just terrible. My clients did not enjoy it at all and I wass very embarassed.
-Servers brought mains courses for 3 people only and apparently mixed up the orders with another table
-They said the food for other 2 guests was on its way and it would take no more than 5 minutes. After 10 minutes the 3 people served started heating as meals were getting cold
-It took more than 20 more minutes for the remaining 2 guests to be served. Other 3 people already finished their meal.
-Server brought 5 glasses of Ouzo to apologize with asking if this was finel (2 of our guest are muslim and do not drink alcohol)
-Server did not even offer coffees or dessert on the house to apologize for the poor service.
-No discount on the check offered.
I will definitely not book this restaurant again.
Thanks.
Fred

I reserved a table for 12 for a surprise birthday dinner. I have to say every time that I’ve been to Volos the service has been exceptional. The waitresses/ waiters are so great with the menu and have great suggestions. The food is great, quality ingredients cooked to perfection! One of my favourite Greek restaurants in Toronto.
